Find me a place I can buy it that is in the USA and I will buy it and translate some of it if I get the motivation to or I can get some Japanese friends to do it. If nothing else, I can email pics from it to you.

Somehow I think I saw this too late, I don't need help translating the 2nd link :(
I only got:
Error 404 : ご指定のページが見つかりません
申し訳ございません。該当するURLのページが見つかりませんでした。
:(

404 "say no more" - probably bad luck, I'll try again later.

Some very interesting pics from the book in this pdf:
http://www.media.mit.edu/events/di-2004 ... 4-1022.pdf

Anyone know what model thinkpad is on page 21? I never knew IBM made a 'Universal PC' - it looks so darn cool! Was this a concept or a real product?

After seeing that pdf, I am really curious to see this book even if it is Japanes. I know 5-6 students here who know Janpanese very well, and I just found out that my library has this book :banana:

Just reserved it, should get it in a week or so. I'll scan and post
some pics.

Thanx gator, nice one :beer: I'll look forward to your post. But, what annoys me is: they picture the S_Series which we never had in Europe :flame: It's a great machine, I actually had the chance to play with one once :D but had to unfortunately give it back to the owner :twisted:

Just received it today. Surprise, there's English text accompanying the Japanese text! I'll try to flip through it this week and scan in any worthy pages for you all.
